It is ok: not a problem taking both vitamins at the same time each day. want to be careful with vitamin D as it is a fat-soluble vitamin and you can get too much of it. Most experts recommend 600-800 international units a day if your vitamin D levels are within normal limits. This can be checked easily by a blood test from your doctor. Vit C at 75mg a day for your age. Don't forget calcium 1000mg a day.

Should be fine: Taking vitamin C is great for your immune system and connective tissue. Vitamin D also helps with your immune system, mood and many other things. There is no problem taking them together.

D+C together is ok: Vitamins can be taken together but like anything else you can take too much. Unless you have a known medical problem that requires more than the daily amount you do not need to exceed this amount. For a young person, 1000 mg of Vit. C and 1000 IU of vit. D3 would be enough. You will get the best benefit if you take the Vits. daily. Increasing Vit C around or with illness is helpful to immunity sys

C AND D: There should be no interaction taking these together as long as they don't bother your stomach. It is easier on the stomach lining if you take these after eating.

Vitamin C: half-life is 12 hours. So, take a does in the morning and again in the evening. Peace and good health. Taking it along w/D is fine. Your doc can check your D level to help you determine how much to take. Many folks used 5K dailly.
